Event Update For 2015-11-18

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

  1. i knew you'd like that pi article. The "transcendental" numbers (like pi and e, the base of the natural logs, and many more like phi) are absolutely fascinating to some of us.

    Wow, today's post is, once again, stunning in that it indicates not only the continuation of what we've been seeing for the past bunch of years, but also how it's (as it does more and more often along the way) ramping up.

    The transformer fire and underground vault explosion in Santa Barbara shows this, but it's repeated in Canada and Australia with burning electrical infrastructure there, causing thousands of people to lose power. Signs of things to come. One of these days, it just doesn't come back on . . . .ever . . . .

    Steel, lumber, landfill and compost businesses flaming out, and another bunch of buses, trucks, cars, RVs (can't forget the scooter!) and buildings all burning.

    Another garbage truck goes up in flames while elsewhere a cruise ship has to be evacuated due to explosions and fire on the ship - some vacation, eh?

    i hope you don't live close by that Lake mentioned above, Jonny .. . scary.

    Aside from the animal and marine die-offs, look at all the people keeling over: college kids, people taking a freaking BATH (ah, COME ON!), middle aged people takin' a dang WALK (fer cry-sake) ain't even safe anymore. i te-ye Jonny, dis ain't too good he' en ah-own lock it.

    Here my wife flew out to CA yesterday and a similar flight got turned back because of rough turbulence that injured some people. DANG!

    Coyotes tryin'-a-keel dowgs, na 'nother home clapses, en how'd ya lock-ta be stuck on a bus in a gol-ang SANKho an' here it brykes the dang WATER MINE!

    Henson says strong afternoon thunderstorms may occur every 3-4 days in and near the city, dumping heavy rain and hail.

    Methane emissions
    From Dorsi Lynn Diaz

    I've been writing about the possibility of a methane crisis for 10 years - and now we are here. Methane has the capability of super-heating the planet, and it's coming out in unsustainable levels now in the Arctic, and in various places around the world. Most of it has been frozen and buried for 100,000's of thousands of years, and now it's releasing at a staggering rate because of our warming planet and ‪#‎climatechange‬.
